Thank you for sharing!!

Muffins are a great breakfast for relaxed weekend mornings, and these Banana Muffins with Streusel and Icing are a great way to start the day. This recipe uses up any overripe bananas you may have lying around, which is great for preventing food waste.

Bananas that are overripe, with their peels starting to blacken, release their sugar to produce a sweeter and stronger flavor in baked goods. The streusel is made of an easy combination of common ingredients and adds a delicious layer to the top of your muffins. Drizzle just a bit of icing on top for the perfect breakfast muffins.

  1. These sound so good! I love banana muffins! I make them a couple times a month but never thought of adding a streusel topping, so clever! When my bananas are getting ripe I like to toss them in the freezer peel and all then when I bake my muffins I let them frost cut the end and they come out almost perfect mashed just like that! Thanks for the great recipe!
